Collaboration leads to success: Most powerful computer of its kind in western N.Y. available worldwide
Date:4/6/2009

BUFFALO, N.Y. Local scientist Dr. Russ Miller is leading the rollout of "Magic," one of the most powerful computers in New York State to qualified users worldwide for solving computationally-demanding problems.

New Methods Allow Scholars to Address Previously Unsolvable Problems

Cyberinfrastructure sits at the core of modern simulation and modeling, which creates new methods of investigation that allow scholars to address previously unsolvable problems, according to Miller who holds scientific appointments at both Hauptman-Woodward as a senior scientist and at the University at Buffalo as a Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering. The Miller Cyberinfrastructure Laboratory (MCIL) is taking advantage of recent advances in technologies in order to link distributed resources, including compute systems, data storage devices, visualization systems, sensors, and a wide variety of instruments and make those resources available worldwide.

"The work done by Dr. Miller's group, which was supported by an NSF grant that also providing funding to Niagara University (NU) provided us with the opportunity to acquire significant computing power and skills. It also allowed us to train students on creating and utilizing modern computing platforms," Dr. Mary McCourt, chair and professor of Chemistry at NU, said. "We are excited to have immediate access to this new state-of-the-art computing system, which enhances the resources of Niagara's Academic Center for Integrated Sciences."

"We have been working on grid computing efforts with Russ and his group for years," Dr. Charles M. Weeks, senior research scientist at HWI, said. "These efforts have resulted in a number of joint research and funding efforts. We are particularly anxious to experiment with this new trend in high-performance computing as part of one of our jointly funded projects, especially for some of HWI's computationally demanding applications."
